R & D

Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc. is a start-up company consisting of a talented and technical group of people.

This group includes experts in materials technology, device development, chip packaging, foundry operations, skilled technicians, and contracts/finance. Collectively, this group represents hundreds of years of experience in the advanced devices for optoelectronics. This group is highly motivated by the chance to create new devices and applications as part of a start-up operation.

In addition to this dedicated team, Magnolia has established a Technical Advisory Board. Members of this Technical Advisory Board are involved with advanced research throughout the country. Magnolia will fund initial development work in these laboratories to cut development cost and time. Magnolia staff will work with these laboratories and manage the development effort. The patent rights and intellectual property will be owned by Magnolia. This strategy gives Magnolia access to the technical infrastructure existing in these facilities to reduce time-to-market.

The Magnolia team has firsthand experience in growth processes, device development, and running the business in their present positions. The network of personal contacts available throughout this community, coupled with a "dream team" Technical Advisory Board, make Magnolia a very viable venture.

In addition, Magnolia Company is hosted in Albany Nanotech CNSE where state-of-the-art facility and advanced tools are at the disposal of our staff to conduct research and development work for Government, Industry and for our own product development.

Magnolia Optical has partnered with CNSE Albany NanoTech to conduct collaborative research and product development. CNSE Albany NanoTech Complex is a fully-integrated R & D facility. The partnership with CNSE center provides Magnolia the strategic support it needs during the initial stages of product development and prototyping. Magnolia scientists and engineers take advantage of the state-of-the-art research tools to develop next generation of materials and products.
